WIND master slave controller

Future Robotics Technology Center (aka fuRo) has come up with a nifty master-slave controller known as WIND (Wireless Intelligent Networked Device). WIND consists of a bunch of tiny System-on-Chip processors and 3D position sensors which are mounted to a vest that senses your body’s movements. All corresponding movements will be translated into commands for a robot wirelessly thanks to a Bluetooth connection, which means you are limited to a range of just 10 meters. A robotic avatar, so to speak, but it doesn’t look as though such technology will make its way to the mainstream market anytime soon. Even so, the average man on the street will probably prefer to spend his money elsewhere instead of such an indulgence.
